I don’t know about you, but I have election hangover. I stayed up way too late and then couldn’t sleep for thinking about the billions, yes billions, of dollars spent on this campaign and wondering how many of those dollars influenced voters. Somehow I suspect that most of us would vote the same way if the expenditures were far less, but that is subject for another discussion.
In any case, preparations for dinner the day after were going to be pretty simple. No red, no blue, just the colors of fall in the gerbera daisies and the gourds that traveled with me from Maine and will be used through Thanksgiving. How easy it is to use the gourds as a starting point.
Tonight they inspired me to choose orange placements and dishes with orange, yellow and green. These dishes happen to be the very first I have gotten from the Dollar Store where so many of you find such treasures.
No matter how simple the setting, it only takes a minute to add little touches that make whatever setting an unexpected treat. For me one of those touches can be a cloth napkin tucked into a napkin ring or folded in a playful manner.
All is ready, and when the hubby sat down he asked what he was supposed to do with that little thing in the bowl! I thought for a second and thought it better not to suggest he bite into it. I do want those gourds to be around for a while longer.
i so appreciate your visit and the comments you leave behind
